The story so far

Xanadu's mission is to build quantum computers that are useful and available to people everywhere. OMERS Ventures led investments in Xanadu at both the Seed and Series A rounds.

Xanadu was founded in 2016, with a mission of using photons, or particles of light, to perform exceptionally fast and complex computations at room temperature. Quantum computing has the potential to solve problems that we’ve previously only dreamed of solving.
